Man,30, hurt in alleyway gun attack
A MAN in his 30s has been shot in Newtownabbey.
He was blasted in the knee in the Bawnmore Park area on Friday night.
DI Conor McStravick said: “The victim was approached from behind by three males as he made his way along the alleyway at around 7.30pm.
“One of the males produced a weapon and fired a shot at the victim striking him in the knee. The males then fled.
“The injured man was taken to hospital.
“Whilst these injuries are not life threatening, this was a brutal attack. It is yet another example of how criminal groups seek to control communities through fear and violence.”
